This is an experiment...

My Broken Heart Robot (an art-toy I created a few years back) as shot with the Hipstamatic app on my iPhone 4.
Lens: Chunky
Film: Ina's 1935
Flash: Off

But that's not the end of it... Actual Lens: Canon 50mm f/1.4 attached to the EnCinema 35mm Adapter for the OWLE Bubo-iPhone 4 rig... approaching cinematic film quality for the iPhone!

No post-processing at all; this is all the SLR lens attached to the iPhone (via a glass plate adapter.)

Video of this setup in action available here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=6e7G_wEZTR0

    @Robin! lol, thanks!

    @Carol, Yeah it's weird when I saw the results of this shoot on my computer just how shallow the depth of field was, much more than on my Canon 30D using the same exact lens...

    ... but then I remembered what is actually going on here and how much glass is being used: The iPhone 4 isn't exactly looking "through" the Canon 50mm lens, the Canon lens is projecting the image of the scene on a glass plate within the adapter, then the iPhone 4 is focusing on that glass plate through 3 macro lenses and a wide-angle lens. It's actually a pretty complex setup, but the results, in my opinion, are like nothing I've ever seen before!
